More on Expo Ernie
Yesterday I posted a view of Expo Ernie, the mascot for Expo 86, taken during the design process. Here's another early view, which I believe is from a sequence shot to first show off the character. Here Ernie is posing with some construction worked on the Expo site in October 1983. A lot of work was going on to get the place built, and Ernie jumped in to help with an equally important task - selling Expo 86 to the public. I'd say he did a good job on that!
